Abstract

Working Document on a proposal for a decision of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the seventh framework programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities (2007-2013)
This document constitutes the rapporteur's response to the Commission proposal for the 7th RTD Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Community (2007 - 2013). It is the rapporteur's firm conviction that any agreement on the FP7 budget that lies below the level proposed by the Commission, and in line with the position of the European Parliament, would shatter any prospect of relaunching the Lisbon strategy and discredit the commitment undertaken by Council, Commission and Parliament to dramatically boost competitiveness, innovation and employment in Europe. He however maintains the conviction that European leaders will be able to respond to the real needs of their people and confirm their commitment to the Lisbon Strategy.
The rapporteur has made every effort to incorporate the ideas of other Members, especially the 'shadow' rapporteurs. He also took into account the recommendations of the Marimon report, the five-year assessment of EU research framework programmes and the Kok report.
